One blogger's lovely aspect of the tour merch, particulaly one tee shirt. Very touching.

There's something about Leonard (Cohen, that is)....

Every concert has its concession stand with its heaps of over-priced souvenir merchandise, and although Leonard Cohen’s merchandise people were no different the prices were neither grossly inflated nor were the tee shirts the usual rather crass offerings. My favorite was one that read ‘Beautiful Loser’.

Think about that for a moment. We’re all capable of being beautiful - no matter what we look like. Our souls can be beautiful. And, from the age of about fifteen onwards, we’re all losing things; teeth drop out, hair thins, muscles ache or sag. We’re in a losing battle against the forces of entropy and aging, and there’s no way we can get to the end of our lives without having lost a lot of stuff, a lot of battles, a lot of illusions. And then we lose our lives.

So we’re losers. But we’re also beautiful. It’s a Cohen motif, linked to his Buddhist studies.

Put the two words together though, and we get another dimension. Since we’re all losers what matters is if we can be beautiful while we’re losing. This is not the desperate bravado of the gambler, who wants to throw opportunity away as fast as possible. Can we, Leonard asks, see the beauty in ourselves and others, during the process of having everything removed from us, either by chance or our own stupidity? Can we become elegant losers? Can we turn losing into beauty?

One thing is certain. It becomes much more possible to do this when someone has taken the trouble, and the love, to point out what will be required of us - all of us without exception - in the days ahead.

Jarkko, and all,
Here is a shot of the special poster (16x22) from the first night of the Oakland show. It was sent to VIP ticket holders along with tote bag, dvd, etc. I believe it was also available to buy at the merch stand in Oakland but quickly sold out. The lower right corner is blurry here but this one is numbered 31/150.

Thought you might like to include it in this collection of 2009 tour items...

Esther

They didn't have the rings at the Red Rocks show, or I would have bought one.

The merchandise was very reasonably priced. I was expecting the usual concert gouging.

They did have a very small amount of rings at Red Rocks, but they must have sold out very quickly. They definitely did not have the mugs :cry: .

I noticed the ladies on stage wearing the rings! At the L.A. concert, there were no guitar picks, and I do collect those, so I hope that they will come up for sale. I purchased a lovely tour pin, and my friend got me another style at the Boston show.
I was cautioned to surrender, this I could not do . . . .

Thanks Jarkko. I love them all.

Online store?

Or better still - I can purchase at a show in the USA in the late fall?

Yes, I am looking for an online store as well since I didn't get the chance to purchase anything from the store after the gig in Antwerp.
I'm very keen on the plectrums... and on a promotional poster from the Antwerp gig, but that's impossible to get.

No offense, but I'm kind of happy there's no online store. I know I would spend a lot and it's not something I need at the moment ;-)

Great postcards though. I really like the idea.
